Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters gets detailed

The game designed to be a movie-tie in gets detailed.

Warner Bros. has released quite a few details regarding its upcoming game based on DC Comics’ popular hero Green Lantern, which will release alongside film adaptation The Green Lantern. Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters will release on June 1, two weeks before the movie’s June 17 release, and will be available for multiple platforms.

To keep the thought of the film fresh in players’ minds, Hal Jordan will have the voice and likeness of Ryan Reynolds. However, there has been no confirmation about Blake Lively or any of the other stars of the film lending their talents to the game as well.

For anyone unfamiliar with the Manhunters, they were the first experiment at a galaxy-wide police force by the Guardians of the Universe before the Green Lantern Corps. These android cops were eventually dismantled by the Guardians after royally screwing up and intentionally slaughtering millions of innocents.

"The few Manhunters that survived fled into exile and the Guardians founded a new elite police force called the Green Lantern Corps and armed its members with specially crafted power rings," read the game description. "Now the Manhunters are back and out for revenge, readying their forces for a war against the Guardians and the Green Lantern Corps. Faced with destruction, the Corps is looking to you as the newest recruit, gifted but cocky test pilot Hal Jordon, to protect peace and preserve justice."

The Manhunters are one of the Green Lantern line of comics’ biggest and most recurring villains. Warner Bros. gave details on just how gamers will able to beat down the Green Lantern Corps’ longtime foes:

– Master the Ring: Wield the Green Lantern Power Ring to create a spectacular range of "hard-light" constructs including a gatling gun, giant fists, and much more, all of which can be linked together to form an endless number of combination.

– Stand Together: Join forces with a friend to play as Hal Jordan or Sinestro to battle the Manhunters, with the ability to drop in or out at will.

– Take Flight: Dodge, blast, and destroy legions of enemies as you soar across the universe in battles of intergalactic scope.
